Nice size cabin with a huge closet. The shower head in this cabin's bathroom is something out of Seinfeld's "The Shower Head" episode (the Commando 450). FANTASTIC!!!! it will perform dermabrasion without chemicals just sheer water pressure. The balcony in this cabin is covered and therefore smaller than the uncovered balconies on Baja or Caribe decks. If I were to sail on Princess Cruises again, I would book a cabin on Caribe deck simply for the larger balcony. Bring your power strip with you if you have gadgets that need charging, I counted three available power outlets in this cabin. One of the twin beds (the one closer to the desk) has an indentation on the mattress...needs to be changed for a new one. I had to call twice to get the A/C in proper working order.

We had room A705. We have been on Princess before and knew how small the bathroom especially the shower is but I accept that what I did not like was the dirt. It was not cleaned every day and the housecoats they gave you were stained and thin. We were right by the elevator but except for a few loud people it was usually fine. You just need to be aware that Princess has smaller room than most other lines.

Clean room with mini-refrigerator, flat screen television, safe, lots of storage space, two reclining chairs on balcony, a small table on balcony, bathroom is rather tired looking but clean, bedside controls for all lights,not too soundproofed, good climate control

B618 - terrific location, although across the hall from some sort of galley which meant we occasionally heard the sound of clattering dishes.  Read entire member review.

This cabin is large enough to accommodate 2 people. The only thing that was lacking was the size of the shower. Literally if you dropped the soap you had to get our to pick it up. Oh well you just don't drop the
soap. The bed was very comfortable and the view from the Baja deck was great, You were high enough that your balcony could not be viewed from above like some of the ones on the lower decks. NIce room.

Thanksgiving Getaway by Linda from New Jersey
We were on Baja deck (11) in the Aft (rear) of the ship on the starboard side, Cabin B727. Even though the ship was booked to capacity, our cabin was very quiet. I highly recommend when booking a balcony cabin, to ask for one that has a "roof" which I believe are decks 10, 11 and 12. A balcony cabin on the lower decks has no roof, and is open to view from above. As pointed out in other reviews, the cabins are getting a bit frayed. There were some marks on the walls; the bedding had stains on them that grossed me out; the tiles in the bathroom need to be re-grouted or scrubbed. Otherwise it was clean. Storage: The cabin had plenty of storage. There were 30 wooden coat hangers pro- vided (I brought all my clothes on my own hangers to save time unpacking); there is a narrow cabinet with shelves and a safe; the 2 bedside tables both have 2 drawers; the desk has several drawers, a mirror and a hair dryer; there is a small refrigerator. Because we drove to the port in Ft. Lauderdale, I brought a lot of extra "stuff" but had plenty of room for everything. The shower is tiny but there was enough storage space in the bathroom for both of us.  Read entire member review.
BE - B730 Good shape overall, large closet but had to ask for more hangers (looks like someone took some). Bathroom had a few patched cracks in the ceiling of the shower, tiny shower and had mold under the toilet rim which was cleaned. Bed was firm, wife said she had a spring in her back. Flat screen was a big improvement over the little TVs in the past, plenty of draws or selves to store our 9 days of clothing. Suit cases fit nicely under the bed and make great pull out dirty close hampers. Balcony was clean, but chairs could use a good scrubbing. Location was excellent, mid way to the promenade or lido decks and toward the rear of the ship, very quiet and smooth. Will definitely look for this location, room in the future.  Read entire member review.

We jokingly called it the LONG BLUE MILE to get to the 2nd forward-most cabin. Bed hard as a rock.

Cabin: Caribe C743 & 739: We had the last balcony on the Starboard side. It is a 'secret' cabin which has a wider balcony- half covered half open. The seas were very smooth all week. Our steward, Val, unlocked the adjoining door for us. Our robes arrived on Monday morning as he said they would. He was very prompt with providing several additional pillows and an additional egg crate. There was already one on the queen bed. (All bedding is scheduled to be replaced during the dry dock.) He also provided an extra large ice bucket as I requested a lot of ice and kept it in the mini-frig. He removed the sodas too, for more personal space.  Read entire member review.
excellent balcony, quite location at the back of the ship, carpet could have used some minor cleaning.  Read entire member review.
